Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

GM/cliché-y bashing thread template:

Title: [PLAYER] is the worst no. [X] evah!!!1!!11!!! Proof inside, plz read.

Contents: [Slam stats] - blahblahblah - ergo, [PLAYER] sucks!!!1!!11!!!.

Note: Do not under any circumstances acknowledge an understanding of how the ranking system works; otherwise, the discussion may turn intellectual. This, in turn, will be like garlic vs vampires on the haterz&trolls demographics and negatively effect your reply count. (We know, sweetie, all you really wanted was a bit of attention, even if it had to come from a bunch of intangible internet people. It's OK!).

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

Actually we have a so-called top player . Top , because her ranking is in 2-3-4 range, but her Slam results are quite average or even low. Yes , she reached one Final with a help of unbelievable cake draw , but was returned back to earth at Olympics on the same courts


Maybe it's time players got 2500 points per Slam victory? and Serena must have gained at least 1500 points for her Olympics Triumph

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

The points are not the issue. The distribution of points needs to be modified. 1400 for a final and 2000 for a win is not a big enough swing.

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

Even though i don't like her and i would like her to lose every match, why is everyone stomping player's results? She got there for a reason, if she is weak, what makes that others ranked below her? And Serena is the best player on tour but she isn't ranked number one, far from it!

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

She´s going to be No. 4 in the Race after US Open, so this thread is kinda pointless: http://www.wtatennis.com/page/RaceTo...~1~100,00.html

Kvitova ~ Šafářová ~ Garcia ~ Madison Keys

Cetkovská ~ Hradecká ~ Siniaková ~ Gavrilova ~ Bencic ~ Allertova ~ Smitkova ~ Makarova ~ Chakvetadze ~ Laura Robson ~ Pliskova twins

She has already told that other players had not been losing in the first round at Slams... That's why she's not Number 1 or 2

she still has a number of MMs and China Opens to get back , while players who go deep at Slams will have to have a rest

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

I hate all these threads that basically come down to complaining about a player because someone doesn't like them and usually they've done well without stellar slam results... she's #2 in the world based on the system we have... if you hate the system then complain about that; but it isn't Radwanska's fault (or Wozniacki's or Safina's or Jankovic's, etc, etc, same old whining...) if the system doesn't reflect how someone feels about who should be ranked where.

I really have no idea why people are so antsy about the whole thing anyway, if someone feels the rankings are a joke and that players like Radwanska are way worse than others ranked below them, then just ignore the rankings altogether and wait for the results to happen.

Re: Is Radwanska a weakest №2 ?

well *I* dont get the whining about eadwanska being a justified #2!
the op asked to put her in compaesion with sabatini, kuzzy, myskina, martinez etc.

what happened? hate having your fave at the bottom area of the list?

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
